Just outside the window...


...perches the state bird of Iowa, Miss Eastern Goldfinch, nonchalantly snacking on a flower.

She doesn't see what danger lurks...just on the other side of the patio door.

LOL! Cute photo, it is almost like that at my house except it is a dog looking at a rabbit and having a severe case of anxiety about not being able to get the rabbit.

I was so taken by the flowers - I missed the finch until I read your remarks. What a pretty bird. Love the photo of your cat watching its every move. :)

Linda-Our kitties get really excited about the birds and squirrels, too!

Sarah-Thank you! It's a common sight around here! lol

Karensue-Thanks! Our cats like looking outside, too. I was so happy when the squirrels moved into our neighborhood last year...most ppl don't care for them, but they are great for cats to watch! lol

Heather-Thank you! I switched to a template by Pyzam instead of using the regular Blogger templates. I chose one with a cat. :-) It was pretty easy to download and install, but I lost a bunch of my links in the process so I'm trying to put those all back slowly. You can find free templates at Pyzam.com and many other places!!
